Uitgebreide vaknaam Spatial Design Atelier (SD)
Leerdoelen 1. Describe the complexity of planning and designing on a regional scale
2. Apply the steps of a design process in a project
3. Reflect with own experiences on key literature on design thinking, and the design process
4. Interpret spatial data in the light of the objectives formulated for a spatial plan
5. Propose a spatial plan that addresses social and environmental challenges (relevance), within ambitious yet realistic frames (legitimate) in an appealing way (credible)
6. Develop a storyline that underpins why the developed spatial plan is a good solution for the formulated objectives
7. Use oral, written and visual means to communicate ideas
8. Perform effectively in a team
Omschrijving The aim of the Spatial Design Atelier is to create a plan/vision on different scales (real-world-planning/design problems) in a pre-defined project area. Drawing up a spatial plan is an informed process, therefore, students will use the analytical skills of complimentary 1st year courses (economic geography, statistics). Furthermore, the students will be introduced to and become familiar with design-thinking and plan-making theories and concepts behind the creative process of plan-making during lectures and via their personal experience of a plan-making process.
The students will work around 2 days per week on their project in the studio, where they will develop a spatial plan in small teams. In addition, they have lectures on various topics, and have to prepare, execute and report fieldwork/field visits on specific sites in the project area.
The expected end products include;
• A territorial analysis of the pre-defined project area and its’ spatial challenges,
• A concept/vision for the future spatial arrangement of the project area,
• A spatial plan for a location within the project area,
• Presentations of their intermediate and final products,
• Peer-review of the group presentations and group assignment,
• Individual reflection on the plan-making process and group work
